A crowd of almost 70 people witnessed a valiant effort by the veterans to topple the current Sabden team. Indeed the Vet`s were leading 5-4 with only 20 minutes to go, before tiredness took a hold. The Sabden first team eventually triumphed by 8 goals to 5.

Despite the final score, there was real fear for long periods that the Vet`s were going to break the 8 match unbeaten run – by far the best performance by a Veterans team in many a long year.

Thank you once again for supporting our event!

best regards
Everybody at Sabden Football Club
